Underdog Josh Burkman earned $32,000 for his shocking, 41-second technical submission of Jon Fitch in the main event of last Friday’s World Series of Fighting 3.

Fitch pocketed $30,000 in “show” money for the brief struggle at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, according to figures released to Sherdog.com on Monday by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

Other high earners on the card included co-main event winner Steve Carl ($20,000) and former Strikeforce lightweight Lyle Beerbohm ($15,000), who earned more in defeat than the man who outpointed him, UFC vet Jacob Volkmann ($14,000).

Note: The disclosed purses reported by state athletic commissions do not include any performance-based or discretionary bonuses that may be awarded to a fighter by the promotion. Additionally, the reported figures do not reflect any deductions made by the commission for taxes, insurance, etc., and do not include any sponsorship money that a fighter may acquire for his or her performance.
